Faculty interested in pursuing funded research will find the expertise and support they need to help them refine their ideas and craft competitive proposals. The CLHB will review proposals, assist with preparing project budgets, and facilitate faculty submission of proposals through the Office of Research and Sponsored Projects.
The CLHB also works with the Graduate School and stakeholder academic departments to support graduate student research, and it will partner with COURI to increase undergraduate student involvement in social science research. In sum, the CLHB will help catalyze the efforts of social and behavioral science faculty and students in pursuit of UTEP’s goal of becoming a Tier 1 research university.
